  1. Best answer
    The short answer is no.

    Crossfire is the AMD technology for pairing two AMD GPUs. You have an nVidia workstation GPU and an AMD consumer GPU.

    Workstation GPUs are not optimized for gaming, and are better used for things like AutoCAD

  3. so i wouldn't hardly(or at all) benefit from putting it in?
  4. Not unless you run them for different purposes.

    You could use the 6850 for gaming and the quadro for rendering (if you do anything like that)

    If you are only gaming, there's no benefit to putting it in.
